Medication Isn’t What it Used to Be

The Black Box warning carried by all anti-depressants since Oct 2004 makes mention of the fact that there is a consistent link between the use of any kind of antidepressant and suicidal tendencies in children.

What is now being considered by the panel is also mentioning on the Black Box label that studies in children found the drugs are no more effective than placebos.

Can it really be that Big Pharma are making hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars a year marketing anti-depressants that offer no benefits at all, but could lead to suicide? And could it really be that psychs are calling this “medication”?
